Can you please review the below draft summary of changes? -

-jumbo has been rebased on 1.7.9, thereby including the enhancements
made in the main tree since 1.7.8.  (magnum)

Support for cracking of RADIUS shared secrets has been added.  (Didier
(currently these instructions are for Didier's original contribution,
not updated for 1.7.9-jumbo-5 specifically yet)

MSSQL and MySQL hashes computation has been optimized.  (magnum)

Lotus5 hash computation has been optimized, and optional OpenMP
parallelization has been added for it.  (Solar)

x86-64 builds now make use of SSE2 intrinsics for more of the hash and
cipher types.  (magnum)

More i-suffixed make targets have been added (which use an icc-generated
assembly file for SSE2 intrinsics), including for 32-bit x86 builds
(previously, this was only available for x86-64).  (magnum, JimF)

MD4 implementation in hand-written assembly for x86/SSE2 and MMX has
been added.  (Bartavelle, magnum)

Assorted changes to dynamic formats (previously known as "generic MD5")
have been made.  (JimF)

The "pix-md5" format has been converted to be a wrapper of "$dynamic_19$",
which used much faster code.  (JimF)

An alternate implementation of NTLM hashing has been added
(--format=nt2), using Bartavelle's SSE2 intrinsics instead of Alain's
explicit assembly code.  (magnum)

The NSLDAPS and OPENLDAPS formats have been obsoleted in favor of the
salted-sha1 format.  (magnum)

A binary build of 1.7.9-jumbo-5 for Windows (including with OpenMP) has
been made.  (Solar)
